Distressed fundraising falls back as senior debt funds lead.

Analysis of the types of debt funds being raised in the market so far this year shows senior debt funds continue to dominate the market.

As the chart shows, senior debt fundraising has risen fairly consistently since 2012 and has come to challenge both junior debt and distressed debt in amount raised.

After hitting a peak last year, distressed debt has fallen back more substantially than either senior or junior debt, while CLO fundraising has reduced considerably after a fairly stable few years.
